A professional BMX vert rider for more than 20 years, Jimmy Walker has been a consistent top-10 finisher throughout his career. Not only is Walker a talented rider, but he is also a businessman, running his own skatepark in Chicago for years.
One of just four athletes who have made every Dew Tour final between 2005 and ‘09, Walker capped off the 2005 season with an overall ninth-place showing. In the two years following, he finished four spots higher, taking back-to-back fifth places in the year-end rankings.
Walker recorded his best Dew Tour finish with third place at the 2008 Panasonic Open, capping off the year in sixth place in the yearlong standings. At X Games 13 in 2007, Walker made the best X Games showing of his career when he just missed the podium, placing fourth – which he repeated in 2009.
